This is 13 miles shorter than going round by the motorway, but sections of the road are not good and it can be very busy, especially during the summer.

Coastal Route - not recommended:
Some people try the route from Jcn36 around by the coast via Millom, but it is not recommended. This route is long, twisty and slow.
